        Lydia's Porcelain

      Montreal, Canada:: Ewa Monika Zebrowski,, 2013.. Edition of 20. 5.25 x 4.5"; 14 pages. Accordion structure. Ten images. Concept, images, and words by Ewa Monika Zebrowski. Bound in chip boards with title stamped on boards. In paper band wrapper. A muted and refined reflection on time passing and life lived. Ewa Zebrowski: "Last October [2012], my dear friend, Lydia invited me to celebrate Thanksgiving with her family in rural Pennsylvania. ... It was an honour for me to be part of this annual gathering. A time to give thanks. We were going to be twelve for dinner .Lydia mentioned that she wanted to use paper plates rather than her limoges china. A practical decision. "On Thanksgiving morning I awoke early. The house was silent. I walked through the empty rooms thinking about friendship, about family, about children on the brink of adulthood, her aging mother. "I discovered the porcelain in the dining room cabinet, an exquisite wedding gift, glistening in its mysterious beauty. I began to consider how we spend the first half of our lives raising our children, working, creating a life, accumulating possessions ?- and the second half of our lives watching our children define their lives, while we try to simplify ours, and part with many of our precious, possessions.

        The Book Of Sand

      Santa Rosa, CA: Nawakum Press. Fine. 2013. Signed by Artist. Cloth. One of 30 copies, of which 24 were for sale. In Spanish and in English, the text is letterpress printed on Curtis Holcomb Text and handmade Cave Paper from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Copper relief etchings, mirroring the style noted in the story, are designed into the text and printed from the copper plates on blocks mounted type high. They are accompanied by two large copper etchings printed by the artist, recessed into boards covered with Japanese book cloth and with a Cave Paper overleaf. The peak roofed book, taking inspiration from the Biblioteca National, measures 11" x 13-1/2" and is housed in a covered box made from Cave Paper over boards. The cover label is letterpress printed on Cave Paper and inset with Japanese book cloth. Each copy is signed by the artist; "The Book of Sand" is a short story written by Jorge Luis Borges, first published in Spanish in 1975. It was from his last major collection of the same name. Borges was born in 1899 and began publishing his poetry and essays in surrrealistic literary journals in the early twenties. He later went on to much critical acclaim, sharing the first Priz International with Samuel Beckett. Borges was named director of the National Library of Argentina (Biblioteca National) in 1955, and served for nearly twenty years while almost entirely blind. Soon after resigning his position he wrote his story of a retired librarian and a very unusual book. Designed in an artists' book format, in collaboration with Peggy Gotthold and Lawernce G. Van Velzer of Foolscap Press, the Nawakum Press edition of The Book of Sand was printed and bound at their press in Santa Cruz, California. Artist and printmaker Thomas Wood of Bellingham, Washington was comissioned to create the etchings for this bilingual limited edition .

        Orbitá

      Havana, Cuba:: Proyecto Locatarsis,, 2013.. Edition of 7 + 1 AP. 12.5" diameter; 22 round leaves. Four volvelles. Linocuts. Collage elements. Bound in paper-covered boards. DVD of work in progress laid in pocket on front pastedown. Some prints signed, dated, and numbered. Red Trillium Press: "In 2010 twelve self-taught Cuban artists created a collective Proyecto Taller and published their first book Sexualidad. After the literal collapse of their studio in the fall of 2011 three members formed a new collective in 2012: Proyecto Locatarsis. "Orbitá is their first publication. It is an amazing first book given what I know about their work environment — or lack of one. Orbital ?'s images rotate on the page, windows open to new views, and the bi-lingual text is hand cut from linoleum." Colophon: "This book Orbital describes, put forth and reaffirms a course ebbing and flowing, and tackling new and old direction. Searching through images and as an inevitable need the Cubanidad [the essence of being Cuban] and the various circumstances of an identify which doesn't stop changing and mixing, folding back and blossoming forth and which solidified, but that doesn't check its progress, or runs out, or loses the essence which makes it meaningful. All the time as a process of unstoppable dynamic. "The circular structure of the book and its representational content is a sense of unstoppable process. Deals with the formation of a concept which becomes its center: the Cubanidad and all its surrounding elements. "Cubanidad is a condition of the soul is a host of feelings, ideas and attitudes. And yet there is a Cubanidad more complete, it could be said that it comes out of the home land core and embraces us and penetrates like the vapour of creation that sprouts from our motherland after being fertilized by the rain sent down by the father sun. "Something that sweetens us with the love of our breezes and snatches us in the vortex of our hurricanes. Something that attracts us and woos us like the female it is. For us: mother, wife and daughter the mistery of the Cuban trinity, from whom we were born and to whom we deliver ourselves, whom we possess and through which we must survive - the human factors of the Cubanidad.

        Ilex Laevigata (male and female)

      Portland, Maine:: Rebecca Goodale,, 2013.. Edition of 3. 16 x 14.75"; six double page pop-outs. Paper cutting. Hand cut silkscreen prints with stitching. Printed on MacGregor hand made paper. Compound slotted and sewn accordion book. Bound in cloth-covered flat back case. Signed and numbered by the artist. Rebecca Goodale: "This is a portrait of a rare shrub in Maine, currently listed as Special Concern. The spare palette and patterns are greatly influenced by a recent trip to Iceland." Although the Ilex Laevigata does not fall in Maine's threatened or endangered categories, it does have a state status of special concern. That is, while the number of occurrences are low (between 20 to 100 in the state) the habitat seems secure so it is considered rare but not endangered. Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry: "Smooth winterberry holly is a deciduous shrub which resembles the closely related common winterberry (Ilex verticillata) found throughout Maine. It grows up to 4 m high, with oval leaves which are finely toothed along the edges and shiny on their upper surface (the common winterberry has dull leaves). There are separate male and female flowers, usually on separate plants, in the leaf axils. The staminate flowers occur singly or two together and are borne on long stalks, while the pistillate flowers are solitary and on shorter stalks. The ovule-bearing carpellate flowers develop into small, red berries. "This plant is restricted statewide to southern Maine. Some populations are vulnerable to conversion of their habitat to residential or commercial use; other populations, located farther within larger wetlands, are more secure.

      - FIRST EDITION OF PASTEUR'S REVOLUTIONARY ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE DISCOVERY OF MOLECULAR ASSYMETRY. "Pasteur's discovery counts among the most important advances in chemistry and constitutes the foundation of stereochemistry" ("Citation for Chemical Breakthrough Awards: Choosing Pasteur's Award-Winning Publication" in Bull. Hist. Chem., 38, 2013). Pasteur's announcement appeared in this Comptes, but because he wrote two more detailed papers later, there has always been an academic argument as to which paper is of the greatest import and should serve as the official citation. In 2013, the American Chemical Society wanted to award the Citation for Chemical Breakthrough award, an award given to a particularly seminal work. After performing a full assessment of each paper, this reported in "Citation for Chemical Breakthrough Awards: Choosing Pasteur's Award-Winning Publication" in Bull. Hist. Chem., Vol. 38, 1, 2013, it was decided that the focused Comptes paper was the most important because it was the initial announcement of an entirely new and revolutionary observation with crucial implications for molecular structure."Soon after graduating from the École Normale Supérieure, Pasteur became puzzled by the discovery of the German chemistEilhardt Mitscherlich, who had shown that tartrates and paratartrates behaved differently towardpolarized light: tartrates rotated the plane of polarized light, whereas paratartrates did not. This was unusual because the compounds displayed identical chemical properties. "Pasteur noted that the tartrate crystals exhibited asymmetric forms that corresponded to their optical asymmetry. He made the surprising observation that crystalline paratartrate consisted of a mixture of crystals in a right-handed configuration. However, when these crystals were separated manually, he found that they exhibited right and left asymmetry. In other words, a balanced mixture of both right and left crystals was optically inactive. Thus, Pasteur discovered the existence of molecular asymmetry, the foundation of stereochemistry, as it was revealed by optical activity. "Over the course of the next 10 years, Pasteur further investigated the ability of organic substances to rotate the plane of polarized light. He also studied the relationship that existed betweencrystalstructure and molecular configuration. His studies convinced him that asymmetry was one of the fundamental characteristics of livingmatter" (Louis Pasteur Biography, Science Control). ALSO: FIRST EDITION of Becquerel's first report of the first photographs of solar spectra. Becquerel took the photos in 1842 and they were first reported here in this volume. Included is Becquerel's methodology in preparing silver plates so as to obtain an image of the solar spectrum. He had creatively allowed a ray to impinge on a plate of silver covered in subchloride of silver. The image was not fixed, and could only be viewed in darkness. A contemporary account catches the 'magic' of this work: Becquerel impressed "on a silver plate an image of the solar spectrum, or in other words, the oblong coloured band of the seven prismatic colours, produced by decomposing a ray of light. This brilliant image (a miniature, and so to speak, artificial rainbow) Becquerel imprinted in a durable manner on a silver plate previously exposed to the action of the chloride. This fact sufficiently proves that the photogenic reproduction of colours is at least within the bounds of possibility" (Eliz Cook's Journal, 3-4, 95). CONDITION & DETAILS: Complete volume. Ex-libris bearing only a deaccessioned stamp on the back of the title page and slight ghosting at the spine where a spine level has been removed. 4to (11 x 8 inches; 275 x 200mm). [6], 728, [2]. Bound in clean full blue cloth, gilt-lettered at the spine. Solidly and tightly bound. Small stain at the head of the last twenty pages, very occasional toning, otherwise clean and bright throughout.

        Balzaculator La Comédie Humaine as a Binary System for Balzacolytes

      Bologna, Italy:: Angela Lorenz,, 2013.. Edition of 12. 8.5 x 6"; 91 double-sided cards. Laid in canvas-covered boards with thread and weight closure. Canvas cover printed in gold. Color dots printed with HB pencil erasers on acid-free cardstock. Text in archival ink pen. Housed in a 10 x 6.5 x 2" plexi glass single drawer case. Signed and numbered by the artist . Angela Lorenz: "This is an analog, proto-computer to determine which characters created by Honoré de Balzac (1799-1850) appear in which stories or novels of The Human Comedy. In 1833, after Balzac had already started writing this collection of 90+ novels and stories, he realized the potential of weaving repeating characters throughout the works, to introduce familiarity into any scene and to eliminate the need to describe every figure anew. This also allowed Balzac the chance to develop individuals further, earlier or later in life, in any given moment of The Human Comedy. Of the thousands of characters, all appearing four or more times are here. "The loom apparatus pays homage to French weaver and merchant Jacquard, whose innovations around the time of Balzac's birth constituted the first computer program: a series of punched cards to indicate a pattern to be woven automatically on a loom. The viewer may place the punched card in front of any of the 179 repeating characters in the Balzaculator and colored dots will show the novels or stories in which a character appears. The Balzaculator Color Code on the reverse is a key to enrich each character by citing professions, status, and personal qualities. For the truly curious, there is also an index regarding the reason two characters share a single sheet. Some notable characters are missing here, appearing only in one story named after them. "The eight linen bookbinding threads allowing the cover to open and close echo the eight-character bit strings of binary code used to write the title on the cover, and the eight sections of La Comédie Humaine. The faux terracotta antique Roman loom weights dangling from the threads, together with the canvas cover printed in gold, summon up Balzac, the fervid collector of art and antiquities, writing through the night in his white cashmere monk's robe tied with a gold Venetian belt. Dots in Memento Archival Ink printed with HB pencil erasers on acid-free cardstock. Errata in archival ink pen based on Balzac's outlandish corrected proofs which he gave as presents to friends.

        Burned Book Book 6: English/Russian

      Cambridge, Massachusetts:: Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz,, 2013.. Series of 8 variants. 11.5 x 8.5 x 2.25" box containing one burned paperback book preserved with PVA, enhanced with oil. Box hand-made by Mary McCarthy, lined with archival pigment prints scanned from snapshots taken by the artist in Wyoming, printed on Rag Photographique, 210 gsm, and covered in Brown Umber Asahi Book Cloth over Davey board. Text design for bookplate by Shawn Semmes. Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz: "Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here is an international effort by artists and poets in response to the tragic bombing on March 5, 2007 of what had for centuries been the intellectual and literary hub of Baghdad in the form of a long, winding street of booksellers. The attack killed over thirty people and injured over one hundred. Bearing witness to this tragedy, over three hundred artists from twenty-four countries have created book objects, letter press poetry on broadsides, and a book of poetry and prose entitled Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here. A complete set of works is traveling internationally; one edition will reside permanently in the National Library of Iraq in Baghdad. "Responding to an invitation to join the project, I ceased my work with shattered plaster and started burning books ?- ultimately altering eight books in five languages, reflecting the true contents of al-Mutanabbi Street bookstalls on the day they were bombed. Then I 'buried' each book in a coffin lined not with satin but with open sky, a suggestion of future and possibility. When partially closed, the boxes bring to mind the shape of a new book. Un-shrouded, the mute books become corpses requiring protection and commemoration. Unable to read them any longer, we honor them with labels marking the day of their demise." There are eight variants with five available as three are traveling with the Al-Mutanabbi Street exhibits.

        Haciendo presión

      Habana, Cuba / Florence, Massachusetts:: Cuba Marzo / Red Trillium Press,, 2013.. Edition of 30 + 3 AP. 12.5 x 9" closed. Eleven prints in all. Ten are displayed in two sets of 5 double-page spreads that independently extend in accordion fashion from the front and back covers, forming a rectangular corral structure with the prints on two opposing longs sides and the front and back covers closing the corral on the short sides. The eleventh print is on the inside of the back covers. Four-page information sheet laid in. Processes: silkscreen, linocut + watercolor, lithography, silkscreen + acrylic, woodcut, and relief etching. Janette Brossard Duharte, introduction: "Haciendo presión ("Putting Pressure") is an independent project conceived by a group of Cuban artists whose creative work has demonstrated for nearly fifteen years printmaking remains a powerful artistic medium within the island's contemporary art scene. The groups first action took place during the 11th edition of Havana's International Art Biennial with a collective show at the San Carlos de la Cabaña Fortress. Their second action is this book that more fully defines their comprehensive vision by putting pressure on social issues. "'Haciendo presión' refers to those actions taken by individuals and groups marginalized or stigmatized by society either to survive or to liberate themselves from oppression. Whether advocating for gender values, ethnic and gay rights, or the right to a political choice, their goal is to exert pressure to advance their human rights. "Their new book's discourse focuses on this phenomenon while reaffirming the worth of Printmaking as a visual art language. Graphic production involves a great deal of physical pressure - the pressure to work under economic constraints, the pressure of the act of creation, the pressure of coping with an underrated medium. More than enough reason for the creation of this joint action! Haciendo presión is an expression that demands continuous action, permanent struggle and necessary challenge.

        Simon Brett: An Engraver's Process A Selection of Engravings with an Introduction by the artist

      Mission, British Columbia:: Barbarian Press,, 2013.. Edition of 175. 10.5 x 15.25"; 120 leaves including 7 fold outs. Of the edition, 55 constitute the Deluxe state, and the remaining 120 the Standard. Texts printed in Joanna with Fry?'s Ornamented for display in green and black on Zerkall Cream laid, with 134 engravings printed from the wood on Zerkall White Smooth. Standard version bound in quarter green cloth with a printed paper label and patterned paper over boards. Barbarian Press: "Books on wood engraving have become a particular specialty of the press since the publication in 1995 of Endgrain: Contemporary Wood Engraving in North America. ... The interest shown in Endgrain has spawned an ongoing series of books called Endgrain Editions, each volume showing selected work of a single engraver, printed from the original blocks, with an introduction and a catalogue of major works. ... Barbarian Press, Endgrain Editions 4: "Simon Brett is acknowledged as one of the masters of wood engraving of the past half-century. He was inspired to take up engraving in the early 1960s by his teacher Clifford Webb at St Martin?'s School of Art in London, where he was principally studying as a painter. He illustrated a number of books in the 1980s and published them under his own imprint, Paulinus Press, winning the Francis Williams Illustration Award for the first, The Animals of Saint Gregory, in 1981. Since 1989, when he retired from teaching at Marlborough College, he has worked exclusively as a wood engraver, principally as a book illustrator. "Although his work has appeared in books from such publishers as David R. Godine [Pushkin?'s The Gypsies and other poems] and in 26 images for the New Testament portion of The Reader?'s Digest Illustrated Bible, the widest selection is to be seen in books from the Folio Society, for which he has illustrated many classics, .... Beyond this, his engravings have been commissioned by many fine presses in Great Britain, the United States, and Canada ?- including ours. "We spent several days with Simon in November 2011 going through the archive of his work in his studio in Marlborough, and with him we made a preliminary selection of images going back to his earliest engravings. In celebration of Simon Brett?'s first fifty years as an engraver and his 70th birthday, we completed a few copies of this retrospective book on his work in time for the Oxford Book Fair in November 2013. ... "An Engraver?'s Progress [Endgrain Editions 4] is more extensive than other volumes in the Endgrain Edition series, containing 134 engravings, considerably more than twice the number shown in the earlier volumes. There are several tipped double spreads of larger images, and the book is in the larger format ...used for Endgrain Editions 3: Peter Lazarov. Simon Brett has written a fascinating autobiographic introduction to his work, there is a Publisher?'s Foreword, and like the other volumes in the series, the book includes a catalogue raisonné of major exhibitions, a checklist of books illustrated by the artist, and a list of his publications as author and editor. It also includes a complete chronological listing of all Simon?'s engravings from 1961 to the present. The two last engravings on the list are the pattern block for the cover paper of this book, and its frontispiece, both specially commissioned. We believe Endgrain Editions 4: Simon Brett ?- an Engraver?'s Progress will become the primary reference for the first fifty years of Simon?'s work.

        Bug Book

      Punctum Press, 2013. Hardcover. Fine. Hardcover. A small open edition with each copy being a little different as each includes a different selection of insects and photographs. This is the fourth one that Kristin has created and she plans on making one or two more. Kristin is a book artist, furniture maker, and teacher from Iceland. Her work typically address feelings, memory, and experience. After moving to America she became fascinated with insects; she says: "there are so many insects/bugs in this country that I have never seen. If they come my way I am happy to study them through my camera lens. I take the photographs using extension tubes. The tubes act similar to a macro lens, and allow the explorer to get extremely close to the desired object. Coming from a little island in the middle of north Atlantic, although there are an infinite number of bugs there, they are not the same. For instance I am only aware of one kind of bee in Iceland, where as over here there are so many." Black cloth clamshell box with seven specimen boxes housing insects. Each box lifts up to reveal a miniature accordion book, which documents the specimen through photographs. Insects include: housefly, Boxelder bug, cicada, beetle, bee, and more. The box is held closed with a wrap around photographic band with velcro closures. The photographs are extreme close-ups, which abstract and excentuate the form and colors of each insect. In this context the insects are transformed into pieces of art. The cloth covering the box has a very slight dampstain, else in fine condition. A well-crafted, innovative book.
